"We’re constantly hearing messages that we’re eating too much and not moving around enough. Now researchers suggest that we’re actually not eating more than we did 20 years ago, it’s that we’re much less active. And that includes not just middle-aged workers tied to their desks, but also young men and women who spend their days sitting in front of their laptops."

  1. "Food-Mood Connection: How You Eat Can Amp Up Or Tamp Down Stress" via Allison Aubrey
If you’re reaching for the potato chips when you’re stressed, then you’re not alone. In a national survey, more than one-third of participants said they alter their diets when they’re stressed, often turning to foods that comfort them. Doctors suggest links between our moods and what we eat –– so, next time, grab a couple pieces of dark chocolate instead. Nutrient-rich foods might just help you keep a cap on your stress.
